Ian Aman lives in the Calgary area, has been married for 20 years and has three children. Ian played hockey growing up and found cross country running in high school. As he got older, Ian loved that he could continue running and compete against yourself. Ian has since completed eight full marathons, including the Boston Marathon and Chicago Marathon, and he describes why he loves this race distance. Ian shares the significant power marathons and training has had on his mind, enabling him to discover what he’s really capable of. We talk with Ian about how his children have become involved in running and track and field, inspiring others and the running community. Ian also shares about a 1600 kilometer / 1000 mile running journey he completed to raise money and awareness for mental health, as well as his coaching business Legacy Endurance, and his new book Soul Runner. Ian challenges our listeners to get out of the box, refuse to be average and to live a life worth remembering.
